The first Research Week at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) will be held April 7-10 and will begin in conjunction with the University Honors Convocation April 7. Research Week marks the first time that UAH has held a campus-wide celebration to promote and recognize the research and creative work of students at the university. UAH has the largest total research expenditures among public universities of its size. "We want to celebrate our proud history of being a research university and create opportunities where everyone can network, share and have fun," says Dave Cook, coordinator of student research programs for UAH's Office of Academic Affairs and an event co-organizer. Research Week's theme is "Communicate, Collaborate, Celebrate: The Next Generation of Research." It is coordinated by the Office of Sponsored Programs, the Office of Academic Affairs, the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development, the Honors College and the Graduate Students Organization. All events are open to the general public.
